The room is a bit cramped for both of us. But it's bearable and snug. The front desk interior is very nice and the host is very helpful. Shared bathroom but it split for women and men. It's located in Sodermalm. Near to Gamla Stan...More

Mariatorget
This rather quiet neighborhood revolves around a
postcard-like park with a dramatic fountain in its
center and is definitely one of Stockholm’s showcase
neighborhoods. Mariatorget, a central residential

sophisticated art galleries, coffee shops and bars.
Stockholmers love to spend their weekends in the park
